The Port of Pasco is slated to receive $3.6 million in congressionally directed spending in the just released 2023 Senate Transportation Appropriations bill. Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell secured the congressionally directed spending to help build the last mile of rail needed for the Port’s Reimann Industrial Center. The rail project will support Darigold’s planned expansion in Pasco as well as help attract other industrial users to the region.
“We are incredibly grateful to Sen. Murray for including this important project in the Senate funding bill,” stated Commission President, Vicki Gordon. “Sen. Murray and Sen. Cantwell have been champions for funding infrastructure that helps bring family wage jobs to our diverse community.”
The Reimann Industrial Center is being developed by the Port of Pasco to bring new manufacturing companies to the Port District. Darigold was the first business to purchase ground at Reimann and expects to break ground on Sept. 8th for their new state-of-the art production facility.
While the Reimann Industrial Center rail project is included in the Senate Transportation Appropriation bill, the Senate and House are not expected to complete the final 2023 federal appropriation bills until after the November, 2022 elections.
